Northumberland PlayZones

Closed 2 Apr 2023

Opened 17 Feb 2023


Do you live in one of the areas listed below and would you like an outdoor sports space (PlayZone) for your community? 

We are working in communities around Northumberland that match the funding priorities set by Sport England.

A PlayZone is an outdoor space usually the size of one or two tennis courts, which can be used for a range of sports and activities. PlayZones will be designed and operated based on feedback from the community.

The potential PlayZones in the first phase of the programme are listed below and we need to hear from people living in these communities as to what you may use it for, and when you may use it.

  • Alnwick
  • Amble
  • Ashington
  • Bedlington
  • Choppington
  • Hexham
  • Newbiggin by the Sea
  • West Wylam

Please complete the short questionnaire which will only take a couple of minutes.

PlayZones come in all shapes and sizes, here is an example. 

If you have questions, please contact


Why your views matter

Community engagement and consultation is pivotal as we progress with the PlayZones programme. We are keen to gather views on the development of these and future usage so please provide as much detail as possible.

What happens next

Thank you for taking the time to give us your views. This information will be reviewed and collated with other feedback as part of our community engagement process. This will then feed into the next stage of programme development through 2023.
